Tight pants banned in Aceh (Indonesia)

A new law is about to be imposed in Indonesian province Banda Aceh banning tight trousers for women and shorts for men. According to the new law, women caught wearing tight pants will have their pants cut off and replaced with a long Islamic skirt.

Banda Aceh is the most conservative province in Indonesia with strict Islamic laws. The previous provincial government issued a law that condemned adulterers to death by stoning, and things seem to get even worse for the more emancipated part of the population.
